    Another Beta hero, who kowtows to his parents and only flexes his alpha skills when he s around the heroineWhy am I always confuzzled, everytime I have to write a review for a Dani Collins romance novel Normally, it s quite easy to review an HP romance novel, because there are certain things that I look for If those ingredients are lacking, then the book gets a low rating This was a very difficult book to rate, because my biggest gripe was with the hero I didn t like him all that much, because he seemed too passive I m a heterosexual female, who appreciates the ultra alpha male H even if he s aggravating at times If I m reading a romance novel where I find very little that s attractive about the H, then it s hard for me to enjoy the story Firstly, Rico s the younger brother of the Cesar, the H from The Consequence He Must ClaimI haven t read The Consequence He Must Claim, but based on Cesar s cameo appearances in this novel, I definitely think that he s a million times alpha than Rico That doesn t augur well for my enjoyment of a novel, if I m impressed by the H s older brother Rico s not my ideal type of H He was a basic beta a second son, who was dedicated to pleasing his parents especially his mother He didn t even have ownership of his own firm That s disappointing in an era where HPlandia heroes are billionaires who answer to no one.Rico disappointed me, because I expect a modern HP hero to be a trailblazer and a maverick a man who charts his own destiny and doesn t depend on a dynastic marriage of convenience to gain control of his father in law s chemicals company Rico had a one night stand with Poppy the heroine right after he d been jilted by his fiancee Faustina Then, the day afterwards, Faustina declared that she s pregnant, so the wedding was back on again Rico had been happy after the one night stand with the heroine and was contemplating going after her, since she d already returned home to Canada But, he married Faustina, thinking that he was doing the right thing Plus, he was happy to be appointed as the President of his father in law s company The H was tired of living in the shadows of his older brother and wanted to achieve professional success on his terms Faustina was a lying, conniving, skanky hagwhore who d been banging her chauffeur The chauffeur was the father of her baby but her parents had threatened to disown her if she failed to marry Rico Basically, the heroine returned to Canada and decided not to tell Rico about her daughter, Lily, because she didn t want to destroy his marriage At the start of the story, the hagwhore s dead and Rico s discovered via social media that he might be Lily s father Anyway, he wheedled his way back into Poppy s life, marrying her and carting her back to Spain Poppy was a wonderful heroine and I adored the little toddler Lily She was the sweetest little girl with the cutest personality The heroine s grandmother was also a lovable minor character And that s why I found it difficult to rate this novel This is my problem with this novel I loved the heroine and certain minor characters, I enjoyed the author s portrayal of the heroine s close bond with her grandparents, the cameos by the MC s from The Consequence He Must Claim were enjoyable and the epilogue was sentimentally beautiful BUT I was underwhelmed by the H If I can t go gaga over the hero, I can t really enjoy the romanceIf I d loved the H, this would ve been, at the very least, an easy 4 stars Maybe I m being too picky, but the H is the most important factor in any romance novel, in my opinion Rico just seemed too passive and weak, to me He did man up in the end and give up control of his former in law s company, but my earlier impression of him, just wasn t salvageable This was a well written and heartwarming novel, that will probably be enjoyed by lots of readers It s just a personal preferences issue, with meI loved the author s inclusion of the scenes that referenced the heroine s late grandfather, especially when Poppy says that she thinks he s looking down at them, up from the stars This played an important role in the story and was a sweet and sentimental plot device Safety Both MC s were celibate during their separation The H didn t have sex with his wife Faustina, after the wedding because she d been too busy banging the chauffeur.

    Alpha maleness 1 5Character arcs 1.5 5The hero wasn t a complete doormat, but he was kind, reasonable, a tad bit wishy washy and had light flickers of possessiveness for the heroine The motivations for the hero and heroine weren t very strong in my opinion I didn t any kind of sense of what their goals were, not even to have healthy marriage or family The hero just suddenly wanted another kid The baby they already had forgotten Plot 1.5 5Pacing 1.5 2Simple one night stand, secret baby, second chance, and marriage of convenience plot It was all awful rushed in my opinion only highlighting big moments Again, one of my pet peeves lately with theses books with babies is that they just hand the baby off to the nanny Ugh I know these HP are fairytales concerning romance but I would love to see for themes of centered around creating a happy and stable family relationship The stuff concerning the hero s place in the company and the plot concerning his dead wife was a bit unclear to me Romance 2 5Sexy times 2.5 5Angst 2 5There was some angst of the heroine felt used by the hero after he went back to his cheating fiancee There was some sexy moments I thought was done well not ver HP like in my opinion because they were so nice Not sure how else to describe them, but no elements of resistance just a lot of want The hero was a standup guy Both were celibate during the two years they were separated.

    Rico wants to make sure his woman is quite comfortable and at home, do you want company His voice lowered, growing thick with sensual invitation Rice hates when his girl is upset, please don t cry You re making me feel like a jerk I liked this book, I liked Rico.

    I have always assumed Spanish people were passionate and blood was near the skin surface However Caesar and Rico were born into a home of aristocracy Their parents were like mannequins and cold Intellectuals but unfeeling No wonder when they found love with their wives it was like jumping off a cliff If you want Caesar s love story then you will find it in The consequence he must claim ,Which I am so happy we get a continuation of the baby swap that happened with another couple from the book The marriage He must keep.When Rico met Poppy, she was a shy feisty red head blooming with a huge crush on her employer s handsome son Rico s engagement was already broken so giving in to their intense passion was easy After their time together everything happened so fast The engagement was back on and by the time poppy recognised she was pregnant Rico got married The Marriage was doomed much to Rico s chagrined He wanted it to work but only when his wife died he got revelations that made his indifference hardened and stronger Thanks to his sister in law, Sorcha , Rico found out he had a daughter,lily I wonder if it just that poppy name her daughter after a flower like herself or was it the name of the flowers found where they had their first passionate encounter Without A DNA confirmation he whisks Poppy back to Spain.married to him I loved reading their insecurities of being back together They both were celibate from their last encounter and their initiation to rediscovering their passions Poppy and Sorcha developed a friendship and have confidence to a homesick Poppy to tolerate her in laws I loved seeing a transformed Poppy I liked the fact she gained confidence but she didn t change herself It took a life threatening situation for Rico to confess his love but it was worth their time together Liked Gran also DC to be proven to be a great author I hope we get Pia s story Casear and Rico s sister hopefully Poppy will eventually meet her new sister in law Please please read this one

    Over the past year or so, I ve come to rely on these quick Harlequin romances quite a bit I keep finding myself in these strange little reading funks and for whatever reason, a short burst of slightly domineering foreign men and the women who teach them that it s okay to fall in love, get me out of those said funks.I usually know what to expect from them but that s okay, they still never fail me Even when they aren t my most favorite, they still do the trick It s a weird thing but I ve quit questioning it The Maid s Spanish Secret came to me at a perfect time, for me, and it mostly delivered what I needed.Poppy had a one night stand while working in Spain She ended up pregnant but didn t find out until the father, Rico, was already married to another and Poppy was back home in Canada It s nearly two years past before Rico now widowed finds out about his child I meanwho doesn t love a secret baby All the usual ensues Man comes to claim his family Man s parents friends don t think new wife measures up New wife struggles to fit in and find happiness Etc, etc Everything I wanted.With one exception The climax was really lackluster for me I needed drama I felt like I was on the kiddie roller coaster instead of the grown up one with the giant hill that always makes your heart drop.

    I coukd not get into this book, having abandoned it a few times to read something else I am not saying that it s bad, because it s not I just didn t like the hero, Rico I did read Untouched until her ultra rich husband before I read this book, and this didn t enchant me as Untouched did.There are some good aspects to it I really enjoyed revisiting Cesar and Sorcha, the hero s brother and sister in law There were somee really great family dynamic but the romance was lacking for me.
